    Thank you for the info Homer. I hope the Targa works as good as the Gain Master.

    I don't know whether it will or not. I've never owned a GM. Let us know what you think.
    You will need to get the top of the AP as high as the top of the GM to really make a comparison. The AP itself is only 4' longer above the feedpoint which is at the top of the mast. The GM is 24' long above the feedpoint.
